BB325BZ / GCN585128



GCN Circulars : Daniel Perley detected optical afterglow with the P60. Also detected by RAPTOR. 5m follow up featureless spectrum z < 2.1.

XRT - didn't do much interesting. Just faded.

BAT GRB analysis: T90 2.3s

Best UVOT position (GCN Circular 15768) RA (J2000) = 02:31:33.78 = 37.89076 (deg.) Dec (J2000) = -01:35:43.4 = -1.59539 (deg.) with an estimated uncertainty of 0.50 arc sec. (radius, 90% confidence).

Sent email to analysists to update position on 30 Jan 2014. on 31 Jan 2014 Paul Dyer said:
Hi Keith,
OK, will do.
Paul Dyer - NRAO Data Analyst 

VLBA started at 0355UT. GRB was at 0323UT - so we were 30 mins late. Oh well.


Data copied to /lustre/aoc/users/kbannist/vlbagrb/vfastr-data/tns_bb325bz_2

Adam says no detections and lots of RFI.

Additional info from Tony

No, we weren't observing. However, this was my first time processing one
and I wanted to make sure I had the extra time. I did need some extra time
to remove MK from observing by removing it from the observe.tx file, sending
it back out, and running queueVex to unqueue it from the observe.tx file on
the wide-band control computer.

Also, while KP was observing the DBEs weren't set up correctly, so apparently
there is no data from this site. Everything else should be OK, however.
